Eiffel Tower Topsy Turvy Sweet Sixteen Cake
I love Paris and began my culinary studies there, so I was delighted when asked by a sweet sixteen birthday girl to design a cake incorporating a French theme, fashion and pink poodles!
We created her a three tier topsy turvy cake, topped with a golden Eiffel Tower. The bottom tier is chocolate fudge cake with dulce de leche buttercream filling, covered in a pink fondant and decorated with fondant buttons. The other tiers are vanilla cake with strawberry mousse filling. A purple bow is wrapped around the middle tier, while the top tier is purple fondant covered with green diamond shapes. A small pink handbag, shoe, a ring and a purple necklace also bring in the fashion theme.
